Tonight’s Forecast: Red Flag Warnings have been allowed to expire across Southern Colorado, with strong gusts still expected overnight for the Plains. A cold front moving in from northeastern Colorado will bring brisk northerly breezes and some much cooler temperatures to our forecast. Clouds will thicken up to reveal partly to mostly cloudy skies by Tuesday morning.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low - 49; High - 68. After a record breaking high of 87° on Monday, we'll see a big drop in temperatures on Tuesday. Highs will only warm into the upper 60s for the first day of October.

PUEBLO: Low - 53; High - 75. We set a record high on Monday of 94°. Highs on Tuesday should be about 15 to 20 degrees cooler, with a partly cloudy and breezy day on tap.

CANON CITY: Low - 55; High - 75. The heat is gone, and is replaced on Tuesday with a partly cloudy and mild day.

WOODLAND PARK: Low - 41; High - 65. Chilly in the morning and mild during day. October starts with more typical fall-like weather for the Teller County high country.

TRI-LAKES: Low - 40s; High - 60s. Tuesday morning will be cold, with 40s giving way to 60s for daytime highs.

PLAINS: Low - 50s/60s; High - 70s. A cooler day, with scattered showers and thunderstorms on Tuesday. Some could be strong to locally severe.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low - 50s; High - 70s. A cooler start to October, with highs warming into the mid to upper 70s on Tuesday, and a slight chance of thunderstorms during the day.

Extended Outlook: A few showers will be possible early Wednesday as a cooler and damper airmass settles in from the north. Daytime highs through Thursday should be right in line with our seasonal averages for this time of the year. A brief warm-up on Friday will push temperatures back into the 70s and 80s for Colorado Springs and Pueblo. A look ahead to the first weekend of October looks pretty magnificent, with a cool down on the way. 70s on Saturday, and a mix of 60s and 70s for the lower elevations on Sunday.
